Taylor Kitsch’s Shoe-Tying Tip Will Change Your Life

"JOHN CARTER"

GQ's sit-down with John Carter-by-way-of-FNL star Taylor Kitsch is a must-read if you enjoy Tim Riggins, underdogs (Kitsch's word), and/or lessons about how to slit a dude's throat in four seconds, Navy Seal-style. But there's also a bit about Kitsch's unorthodox shoe-tying method — which involves looping the strings around one extra time before you make a bow — that seems worth your time. "I play in a men's league hockey in Austin," he explains, "And I'm like, 'Gentleman, listen up. This is going to change your fucking life.'" Go on! All you've got to remember: "just go around one more. Just one more." What about three times, GQ asks? "No. It gets awkward if you do it another one." And how confident is Kitsch in his method? Very. "Let's make it an app. A $4.88 app. All the languages. Make it worldwide."  You heard the man.
